Ohh I see, no my slow drip will only be to remove water from the entire system so there is rooms for the automatic top off to fill it back up, the drains coming from the tanks will be huge 1" holes free flowing back to the sump. It will basically drain as much as is pumped in from the sump. I was also thinking about the power cutting off and some crazy chain of evens happening that causes the sump to over fill, was thinking about adding a drain hole on the sump to direct any sort of over flow of water like that.
And after thinking about it for a while I think I'm going to keep my constant water change auto top off system in the setup, in the past month or so there has been a ton of co2 in my water which has dropped my tap down to a pH of 7 from being at 8. I think the constant water change will adjust the water parameters so slowly there will be no tanager to any sensitive fry plus it will give the water a chance to let the co2 escape.
I was also thinking instead of hooking a valve up to a tank to drain you could just attach it to the pump return hose and let the pump do all the work.
I might go pick up the rack and some other stuff tomorrow, we will have to see but I already got some tools and clamps for the project today at harbor freight.
I appreciate all your guys input, its given me a lot to think about and plan, we'll see how this comes together now I just got to figure out what pump I want to buy... don't want to spend to much but I also don't want to be spending that money again a year from now to replace a bad pump.
